Pre-Construction Services

There is general consensus in the construction industry that the best-built projects have many critical problems anticipated and solved in the Preconstruction Phase, before any construction begins. By far, the largest percentage of potential cost savings is identified through Owner / Architect / Construction Manager / Subcontractor cooperation before designs are finalized and before any subcontracts are awarded. Working with our network of construction trade specialists, EnviroStruct, LLC’s Estimating/Purchasing/ Project Management experience, in consultation with our subcontractor and supplier relationships, will be able to develop numerous cost savings and value engineering recommendations for all types of building systems during the Project Preconstruction Phase and continue throughout the project. We take an approach to eliminate unforeseen change orders by being involved at an early stage.

Our scope of Preconstruction Services typically proceeds as follows:

  • Consult with, advise, assist and make cost control and value engineering recommendations to the Owner and his design professionals on all aspects of the Project’s planning/design
  • Prepare and periodically update a preliminary Construction Schedule and Cost Estimate
  • Study design alternatives for cost effectiveness and construction feasibility
  • Review drawings and specifications for coordination
  • Develop subcontractor interest in the Project and prepare a list of prequalified subcontractor bidders for the approval of the Owner and his design professionals
  • Define scopes of work for each building trade and assemble bid packages
  • Obtain bids from approved subcontractors
  • Formalize the Project Construction Schedule
  • Develop an accurate budgetfor the Project Construction for the Owner’s approval
  • Recommend to the Owner and his design professionals a schedule of procurement for materials and equipment which require long lead times for delivery
  • Award subcontracts and prepare contract documents
